the earned income tax credit. one way they are doing that is through obama care which provides a new health benefit to low wage workers who don't get insurance through work. part is what is politically attractive, it doesn't have an explicit cost to taxpayers, it pushes the cost on to employers. the problem with any program with a hidden economic cost, it does flow through somewhere. for example, from retailers that have a lot of minimum wage employees and to some extent in the form of lower employment for people with low wages. it would be nice to talk about a broader sweep of policies aimed at increasing a lot of people with low incomes. nobody is willing to talk about things that cost money to the taxpayer. >> i don't want to get in a big debate about the minimum wage today, maybe another time but the research seems to show that there is little to no impact in terms of increasing unemployment. we have natural experiments all across the country with states and localities that have varied levels of the minimum wage. i did want to listen to what the president had to say, bigger picture abou
